    As English language teachers strive to deliver comprehensible input (Krashen & Terrell, ) in order to facilitate language acquisition, drama can aid in making that input comprehensible. If a student reads a story without being able to comprehend what was read, participating in or observing classmates’ reenactment of the story will help. With the use of drama, we want to find a systematic approach to education which invites pupils to participate, to search, to use their creativity and aesthetic competence. In addition, we want them to learn to see and feel the experience of drama.
